Beautifully crafted cavaquinho with fine details and pick-up
Simple design, high-quality mechanics, matt finish and brilliant, voluminous sound.
If you're looking for an affordable model with amplification options that is so well crafted that you'll want to play it for many years to come, you've found a real piece of Portuguese guitar art here. Very good value for money!
Nearly half a century of luthier tradition have gone into this small, very precisely crafted Portuguese cavaquinho. APC is specialised in Portuguese string instruments, their focus is on quality and good sound. It isn't half bad looking, either! Soft, warm, local woods and the luthiers experience of a family business have created a series of instruments that are really impressive, beautiful and with gorgeous sound qualities.
Customer reviews for "Cavaquinho Basic electrico"(1)
This is now my tenth cavaquinho and after few days playing I like it very much. The sound is better, brighter and fuller than in models of Rozini or Giannini. Also the microphone system is very nice. I have always liked APC-instruments and this one, even as a cheap model, is a good companion to make music.
Handmade quality cavaquinhos from Portugal, beautifully finished and made in Europe
Born in 1951, António Pinto Carvalho, founder of APC Instrumentos Musicais, opened his company in 1976 with the aim of producing high quality stringed instruments.
Already at the tender age of 10, António Pinto Carvalho began to learn the art he still devotes himself to today. Guided and inspired by his grandfather, he built the first cavaquinhos and guitars. Today he is one of the most famous guitar makers in Portugal, the company is still in the hands of his family.
With around 50 employees, APC is the largest national company in this field and produces and sells a wide range of instruments worldwide. Despite its traditional background, the company invests in the latest technology and strives for the greatest possible accuracy and precision in the manufacturing of string instruments. However, the irreplaceable work of a luthier remains important, turning every instrument into a unique piece and defining its beauty and sound. The symbiosis between 19th century craftsmanship and today's technology is the key to the quality and authenticity of every APC instrument.
APC Instrumentos Musicais stands for Portugal's reputation for string instrument making, a country as rich in chords and sound scapes as the string instruments themselves. Genuine Portuguese culture and tradition.
